On No-ego & No-self, from Jeff’s Foreword to Bernadette Roberts’ What Is Self?: A Study of the Spiritual Journey in Terms of Consciousness.
“Watch the weight on a fishing line with no float or bobber. The weight may only be a few ounces, but what happens? It’s beautiful. It hits the water and then it sinks down, slowly yet smoothly. It doesn’t stop at one foot and enjoy the view, does it? It simply continues on. It naturally goes down of its own weight, of its own accord. That’s samadhi.”
Jeff Shore, Being Without Self
